This doc mentions the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition as a great source of information, so i found it on the web.
In the July 2010 issue they stated there were 2 independent studies that suggested dairy food may be associated w/a lower risk of cardic disease. Specifically they were looking a WHOLE milk.
Still doesn't mean I will drink it. But this is where information is conflicting and confusing.
They did say independent studies.. i don't know if they were independent from each other or independent from the dairy association.
will go back and check who paid for the studies.. if i have access without paying. AJCN is not cheap.
I sure wish the AJCN were all open access for all - I like to dig around in the official reports as you do as reading between the lines can tell you a lot as well!
And the thing about research is, as always, when working with humans it can be so difficult to isolate the variables. For example, the huge campaign in recent years pushing dairy as being helpful in weight loss it is found that the subjects were put on a weight loss (calorie deficit) diet that just happened to include dairy products as well. The subjects lost weight, but does that mean it was due to the dairy or....
Thanks for posting your thoughts!
